Various Artists - Intelligent Toys 3 (Sutemos014)
Audio Item Preview
After the record braking second part of this series which contained 28 tracks in total we said to ourselves that we are not going to repeat such mistake ever again. But were not very successful in controlling our appetite – 20 tracks and almost 2 hours of ambient/idm/instrumental music awaits you in IT3. We are not saying that these are the best of the best (that would be too much) – these are simply the ones we love most in 2006.
Third part remains the same = all that matters here is music. And performing artists, of course. Intelligent Toys is like our family, our community so it is obvious that it is featuring artists that you already heard in our previous releases. We don’t want to change anything. At least until now.
Today we call them residents of Sutemos.net and it feels really great. It is also pleasant to have them on a signle release, not on 105 different EPs, singles or whatsoever. These are one of the most popular electronic producers that have released number of albums, featured many famous compilations and signed to many labels. These are: Manual, Digitonal, Subtractivelad & Bitcrush, Syntaks, Sabi, Ylid, Tim Koch, Sleepy Town Manufacture, Deru & Isaac Sparks, Maps & Diagrams, Joel Tammik, Bauri, Praveen, Ruxpin, Lackluster, Sepia Hours, Ochre, ENV(itre)...
We don’t expect you to discover anything new with Intelligent Toys 3.
If any of the masterpieces touches precious piece of your soul that would be more than enough for us.

I wanted to make a few points about the style of the electronic music in general, but it's impossible to talk about electronic music as a "style" rather than as a production method. (And don't even bring up that pretentious term "IDM".) Consider the music we call "Classical music" - generally this means the period when Mozart and Beethoven were producing, but at the time it was only known as "music".
Intelligent Toys is a refreshing sampling of modern music, period. Get every volume (1-5 for now). Look up the artists you like, buy their albums (though many give their music away on their respective websites), and discover the road less traveled - it will be far more satisfying than what you can hear on FM these days. These artists are taking sound and the listening experience in a new direction. I just wish I could find this whole collection in FLAC!

I'm not saying that this compilation is bad. It's sort of musics taste thing. I know only one thing - those artist have released many amazing songs, but these songs are not in this compilation.

A few days ago, I was delighted to have received an email from Sutemos informing me about the release of Intelligent Toys 3. Frankly, I was rather disappointed on my first round of listening. Probably it was due to my high expectation of the Intelligent Toys series and probably it was because IT3 isnÃ¢ÂÂt really a melodic IDM album like IT1 and 2 were, IT3 is more of an ambient album than an IDM album.
I gave it a few more rounds of listening and the album just grew on me. An album full of unreleased ambient/IDM tracks by known artists that are carefully selected by the fine team of Sutemos producers. Each tracks are unique in their own ways and the Sutemos team has made a great job in the ordering of the tracks. As you proceed down the album listening from the first track, you just canÃ¢ÂÂt help but drown in the sea of great ambient music and before you know it, you are already at the final minute of the last track.
Ruxpin - I Saw Her Standing There
An ambient track with minimal rhythm and simple melody line, but the nice use of vocallic sounding pads make this track stands out among the rest.
Sleepy Town Manufacture - Nostalgin
I simply love the good use of various noise and strange sound snippets to form part of NostalginÃ¢ÂÂs complex yet impressive rhythm.
Bauri - Vinkelvolten I
Probably one of the the tracks with the strongest and most uniform beats in the album. The beats together with the soothing melody line makes it such a nice song to chill to.
